Viewsonic Jin Yong e-reader

This is another great ereader from Viewsonic. It was named after a popular novelist, and it has a Marvell CPU, Wifi, 2GB Flash, and a unique touchscreen by a Swedish company called Neonode. It was developed by a Koobe, a Taiwan tech company, specificaly for a partnership between Viewsonic and Yuan-Liou Publishing. The Jin Yong is going to retail for about $150, which would make it their cheapest ereader when released in July.

I was a little surprised to hear that; I’d say it looks more sophisticated than Veiwsonic’s other ereaders. They look like consumer models; this one looks like a high-end model.
